The indomitable, unbeatable, incontrovertible, picks for Week 1

The Houston Texans aren’t the only ones playing tomorrow, after all.

We’ve waited seven-ish months for this moment. The moment when we see battle red, steel blue, and liberty white take the field for real, full-caloric-intake football for the first time this season.

But the Texans aren’t the only team on the docket this week. In fact, because it’s Week 1, every team is playing because how else do you kick off a season without all the teams playing. DraftKings Sportsbook has all the latest odds, and we make our picks below.

With that in mind, here are my picks for this week’s slate of games in case you feel ambitious enough to put a little coin on some non-Texans games.

Please remember do not gamble money that you cannot afford to lose. I’d feel awful if someone wound up ruined because of my advice (which is awesome and brilliant but not guaranteed by any stretch of the imagination), so please be careful.

For entertainment purposes only, please do not take financial advice from a football blog.

Thank you.
